Abstract

The heterogeneity of chicken prealbumin (PA) has been shown to be due to the occurrence of three different plasma proteins (PA1 PA2 and PA3). Equilibrium dialysis studies revealed that the thyroid hormones bind specifically to PA2. These hormones bind at the same site on PA2. Circular dichroism studies failed to reveal conformational changes on interaction of retinol-binding protein and thyroid hormone with PA2. Both retinol-binding protein and thyroid hormone are independently transported by PA2.
